May I recommend you watch this video? Fiddle with the “settings” to get English subtitles if needed.
I wrote earlier this year about the 8M demonstrations in Spain and other countries, and about how they took the celebration of the International Women’s Day to a different and dynamic level. The topic of this video is a women’s battle cry that started in Chile earlier this month. It takes the 8M message further. It communicates – no, it screams – that women truly have had enough. It does so at a completely different decibel level. It is urgent and hard hitting. This protest voice has no equivalent in the male world.
I don’t want to attempt to interpret this primal scream from women globally. Their performance speaks louder and clearer than any mansplaining guy in his 60s could ever aspire to. I can only watch and share the video, and hope the ridiculous inequality and violence women suffer will see some real reduction. Soon.
I couldn’t stop watching this video. I am excited to see what happens next.
